So, when we chose our fish yesterday, all of the Mickey Mouse platys we had to choose from were female. I specifically asked if they would be able to tell if they were pregnant. The woman said, "Oh, yes! Their bellies are super big when they're pregnant. It's really obvious." Apparently it's not all that obvious. We have at least five baby fish today. They're cute. Hopefully they'll fare well in our tank. I actually thought that the fish that turned out to be pregnant wasn't acclimating very well, because she's been very still and not swimming around or eating as much as the other fish. Turns out she was just in labor!
